TLS signed “Always affectionately, Jackie,” one page both sides, 5.25 x 7.5, personal letterhead, March 21, 1972. Letter to "Congressman Rooney," in part: "I do want to thank you—and more than I can say—for taking so much time to help us with our problems. It was so difficult to get the proper information but now due to your helpfulness everything is in order. It seems that the years go by without a chance to see one's old friends but I think of you and hope everything goes well with you." She adds a lengthy handwritten postscript: "Please come and see Caroline and John and me when you are next in New York—You were practically the first person John ever saw—next to his parents—do you remember when he was a tiny baby and you came to Florida? Well, you have to come back and see the results of his proximity to you at such a young age! He is really nice—we all do look forward to seeing you. xo." Double-matted and framed with a portrait of JFK and Jackie to an overall size of 20.75 x 29.75, with a window in the backing for viewing the reverse. In fine condition.
